Quaint New England farmhouse stay
Very nice interior layout, very open, with sections to accommodate 3 or 4 different sub-groupings. Furniture layout changed slightly, but not in a negative way. Table off the kitchen was bigger (more like a farm table) than the pictures, which was a plus - we easily fit 8 for dinner. Wood stove no longer there, but that was not a problem. Pool table was in pretty good shape and was used often. Kitchen was functional, with plenty of utensils and the pots/pans were enough to get by. Bedrooms were as pictured, with the master being a large room. The third floor bedroom / play area was a bit dated and cool, but had a guest sleep there without issue.
First impression of the exterior was that it looked old, but it is a 19th century farmhouse after all. Some activity at the stables, but the caretakers there minimized use of the shared driveway so as not to disturb us. As it was winter, did not make use of any exterior facilities, but the view of the horses provided some amusement.
There were good and bad things about our stay, and we don’t want to be overly critical, so here is a basic breakdown.
Good: Location was peaceful and gorgeous. My wife loved watching the horses in the morning, and enjoyed the sunset greatly. The house had plenty of room for six people, and could’ve accommodated one or two more comfortably. There were plenty of bathes/bathrooms. The kitchen is fantastic - we did a mock thanksgiving dinner and had everything we needed. The pool table was a hit, and got used a number of times.
The bad: The hot water was an issue. Despite waiting about half an hour between showers, only two people got a hot shower during the weekend - and we did not all shower on the same day. The photos showed well stocked toilet paper, but we only had a few rolls in the house, and they were mostly used. The furniture and appliances are noticeably worn compared to the photos. Aside from the master bedroom, the other guests complained about the uncomfortable beds. These were minor and don’t warrant a 3 star review. However...
We stayed Friday to Sunday. On Saturday at noon, we received a message from the owner asking us if we could checkout early to accommodate the next guest, who wanted to come earlier. We hadn’t been there for 24 hours and we were being asked to leave early. The whole conversation made us feel very unwelcome. We’ve used many different services like this, and have never had this experience before.
We will not be returning.
This review is quite unfortunate. With tons of communications no mention of water issues were ever discussed. It is hard to respond to a guest when w edon't know there is an issue.
This is after we adjusted our house rules and allowed the guests to bring a bulldog to the house.
Most importantly, we never asks people to leave early for any reason. In this case we simply checked with them the night before to see how everything was going at the house. I asked what there plans were the next morning because we had to schedule our cleaning service before the next people arrived. I explained our check out time was 11:00 am and they were welcome to stay until then. The said they could be out by 10:00 am if that would help and I told her that was fine if it worked for her group.
Her response was: "Works for us! Thank you :)
I am very disappointed in this review.
